Situated in an elevated location within walking distance of Wokingham Station and town centre, Fernleigh House is a stunning Grade II listed late 19th century family home with accommodation over four floors. The property has been sympathetically re-modelled and updated by the current owners over the last 16 years and was once the residence of one of Wokingham’s most famous patrons, Mayor William Thomas Martin. Unusually for a town centre location, the property comes with a large double garage, stunning landscaped gardens approaching 1/3 of an acre and a roof terrace for barbeques and parties.
The property comprises reception hall with attractive tiled flooring and staircases leading to both the basement and first floor. There is a front aspect drawing room with herringbone patterned light oak parquet flooring, feature marble fireplace, front aspect bay window and circular turret. The dining room is to the rear, again with feature fireplace, light oak flooring and double doors onto the garden. The rear aspect study also has doors to the garden and off the hallway is one of two ground floor cloakrooms.
The kitchen is dual aspect and is fitted with a contemporary range of Shaker style units in pale duck egg blue with dark granite work surfaces and matching centre island. There are spaces for free standing appliances including wide cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. A wrought iron turning staircase leads up to the sun room above. Stepping down from the kitchen is the breakfast room with a feature curved glass block wall and light oak flooring with a door leading to the rear hallway, which in turn leads to the second ground floor cloakroom, utility room, the double garage and garden.
On the lower ground floor is the basement family room and on the first floor are three genuine double bedrooms with feature fireplaces. There is a family shower room and separate family bathroom which incorporates a bespoke circular spa bath in the turret.
Also accessed from the first floor from a double bedroom are steps down to the sun room with dual aspect windows and doors leading onto the roof terrace.
Going to the second floor there are two further rooms which can either be used as bedrooms or as currently laid out, a bedroom and additional sitting room.
There are many noteworthy features running throughout the property including the fireplaces, high ceilings, decorative cornice and dado rails.
The Terrace is in a conservation area of similar aged properties in the heart of the market town of Wokingham with its eclectic range of shops, restaurants, coffee shops and bars, with more comprehensive facilities available at Reading, Camberley and Guildford.
The area boasts some of the country's best schools and enjoys excellent leisure facilities.
For the commuter both the M3 and M4 motorway are easily accessible. Wokingham Station provides an efficient service to Guildford and London Waterloo and in the other direction to Reading Station which is the third biggest interchange station outside of London, with efficient services to London Paddington.
The adjoining double garage is approximately 21ft x 20ft with personal door to the side, large double doors to the front and internal access to the utility room. There is room in front of the garage doors to park a car.
The garden itself, an unusual feature for such a town centre property, is approximately 110ft x 110ft and was originally believed to have been designed by William Martin as a water garden with its feature 55ft ornamental carp pond which is surrounded by a levelled lawn area and raised flower and shrub beds. There are numerous paths crossing the garden with a rockery and planted borders, ornamental bridge and established flowers and trees. There is also a secondary pond with waterfall.
Stepping up to the roof terrace, approximately 33 ft square, this large terracotta tiled terrace is superb for outside entertaining and dining with a stone balcony overlooking the front and steps giving access to the garden and steps up to a decking area with access to the sun room.
A stunning Grade II listed late 19th century family home within walking distance of Wokingham town centre and station in approaching 1/3 of an acre.
